Chasing Nikki (Chase Walker #1) by Lacey Weatherford {book review & giveaway}




{about the book}
Chase Walker used to be a good kid—charming, athletic, and with a bright future ahead, but that was before travesty struck his life, sinking him into deep despair. Caught up in a world of drugs and alcohol, he doesn’t notice time slipping away until he’s arrested for underage drinking one night. 


Fed up with watching her son destroy his life, Chase’s mom relocates him to live in a small ranching community with his ex-military grandfather. Chase is far from happy about the situation until he meets, Nikki, the cute cheerleader who won’t give football players like him the time of day. 

Chase enjoys a good challenge though and sets out to claim Nikki for his own. He soon discovers she’s more than a pretty face—she’s a balm to his troubled spirit also. But when tragedy strikes Nikki’s life too, suddenly Chase finds himself put to the ultimate test. Can he trust Nikki, and all that she’s taught him? Will it be enough?

{my thoughts}
I actually read this book awhile back, like probably a year ago. It was free and I thought sure why not? The cover was attractive. Ok, the guy on the cover was attractive and it sounded interesting. 

Then I started reading...

I fell in love. Not just with Chase but with the story that Lacey Weatherford had created. I read Chasing Nikki in just a few hours. I'm not sure I did anything else but read, laugh, and sob my eyes out. It was one of the most emotional books I had read and it felt as if my heart was breaking. 

This story has really stuck with me. The feelings portrayed in the book felt so real. I have shared this with so many of my friends and decided I needed to share it with you...this is an excellent book and you really need to read it!
